Today I went to the Titanic Museum in Gatlinburg Tennessee. I was given the boarding pass of an actual passenger named Edith Sandström. She was a first class passenger and was blood to a lot of ship related workers. When the Titanic was going down, she gave up her seat on a life boat to a friend of hers who had kids. She went down on the boat and died, but her friend survived and got back to her family. A true heroic act.
The grand stair case in this was actually recreated from the blue prints that the actual grand stair case was made from on the Titanic. It felt so magical to walk these stairs, they’re absolutely breath-taking.
The clothes pictured are ACTUAL outfits from the Titanic movie. I was very excited about Leonardo DiCaprios outfit being there.
The Museum has over 400+ actual artifacts from the titanic. It was very sad to go through and look at all these, knowing the story of where they came from; especially the children’s items. This was a truly wonderful visit, and also very humbling.
